*** Advanced intermediate hike in warm weather. You should have basic map and compass skills, be OK bushwhacking. The hike is entirely on well traveled herd paths, but people do get confused or on the wrong path, which then makes it a bushwhack, requiring basic off trail orienteering skills. - This should only be attempted by experienced hikers***

distance of 15.8 miles, approximately 6000' elevation gain
